Three short space documentaries that are out of this world

“The contemplation of celestial things will make a man both speak and think more sublimely and magnificently when he descends to human affairs.”

– Marcus Tullius Cicero, c. 30 BCE

Space is always fascinating so here are three short online-only documentaries to help the mind wander.


Adrift is a compelling piece of documentary film-making about space junk. Starting with the story of the 17,500 mph space-spatula dropped by astronaut Piers Sellers, the film goes on to tell us about the approximately 16,300 objects over 10cm in size circling the Earth right now.

The Last Steps – A Really Great Big Story

Using rare footage and audio, The Last Steps tells the story of the last NASA mission that sent men to the moon. Truly fascinating.

To Scale: The Solar System

This is what happens when a group of friends decide to build a scale model of the solar system on a lakebed in Nevada. Guaranteed to get you thinking about the vastness of space, this amazing film must be seen.
